    Ben,

    I explain it as Affirmative Action, which by lifting up millions of Blacks, had an unintended side-effect: middle and upper middle class Black, especially children of Affirmative Action parents, start thinking they're better and did it all on their own, which created a rift in the Black Community, between so called Huxtable Blacks and Ghetto Blacks. And while many Huxtable Black do remain staunchly Democrat, many have not only adopted formerly white middle class neighborhoods, but also the ignorance and bigotry that goes with feeling apart from others.

    Only the ones that have not read Uncle Tom's Cabin and thus know how insulted Harriet Beecher Stowe would be that her Uncle Tom character, which is anything but an "Uncle Tom" came to be associated with the racist slur.

    Unemployment among the black community is at 35% Record high wefare participation. You call that success? Or. Is it vonsidrred success, because more welfate tecipients means more Democrat voyers?

    The feeling is mutual. Superb empty rhetoric. Bravo.

    Meanwhile, how does it happen?

    There's a maxim: Success has a 1000 fathers; failure is an orphan. What it speaks to is what's well understood in human psychology: attribution-error bias. In short, we tend to think our success is entirely of our own making, and thus under-attribute environment's contribution. Conversely, when dealing with failure, we blame environment and under attribute effort's (lack of) roll. For example, most businesses fail due to being ill-conceived and poorly managed. How many failed businesses attribute their failure to that cause? 1? 0? The environment is blamed: regulations that apply to all businesses, even successful ones. Employees, which all businesses hire, even successful ones. Taxes which all businesses pay, even successful ones.

    Back to the children of Affirmative Action: they completed college. They got a great job. They're better than other Blacks, and do not need the help being offered the less enabled. They fail to see how it, the environmental effect, is what contributed to their own success. In fact, they might rail against it, since recognizing its positive effect would force them to accept how they too were helped.

    And of course Abortion too, can have an effect on voting. And many Blacks are Christians, some of whom are Christian Conservatives/Pro Life. So no Black Person is captive of the Democrats. It's only most who are loyal to the party that supports issues they consider important.

    And with the coalition of other Minorities, along with White Liberals, in national elections (President) Dems are now nearly unbeatable. Short of nominating Jeffrey Dahmer, we win in a walk, for President, due to a changing racial makeup in the voter population. Bush 43 won by very narrow margins. First time with some ballot serendipity in FL and less than Gore in the national vote total; second time with the nation frightened of terrorism, when folks rally behind our leader (Oklahoma City rescued Clinton from the Lewinsky Scandal) ... and time has marched on since then, getting even worse for the GOP, nationally. Until there's a paradigm-shift in how minorities perceive the GOP, Dems will occupy the White House unabated.

    Simply the truth.
